Overview

A seek-and-find book invites Ba’s youngest fans to help find his lost kitten.

It’s time for bed, George tells Bartholomew. "Nah!" says Ba. He needs to find Little Black Kitten first! With this irresistible lift-the-flap book, readers can help a cranky Ba hunt for his pet by lifting up a chair skirt, sliding back some draperies, checking under the tablecloth, even peeking behind the bathroom door. Along the way, they’re sure to find some hidden things they didn’t expect - but no Little Black Kitten - until Ba is ready to roll down the covers and crawl into bed. Surprise!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
George and Ba are back in Where Is Little Black Kitten? by Virginia Miller. Readers lift flaps to help Bartholomew search under the chair, behind the curtains and the bathroom door in the paper-over-board book. (May) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
There are lift-the-flaps on seven of the nine double spread pages in this little book. The flaps are large, easy to find and easy to lift, not frustrating for little fingers. The pictures show a small honey brown bear who is looking for his little black kitten before he goes to bed. He looks behind doors and under covers, curtains, bedspreads and upholstery skirts without success, but when the covers of his bed are turned down, there is the little black kitten, sleeping in his in bed. There is an unusual element in this book. The relationship between the two bears in the story is never spelled out. The first words in the book are, "Bedtime, Ba,' said George. 'Nah,' said Bartholomew;" but it is never clear they are father and son. The little honey bear and the large brown bear continue to be identified simply as Bartholomew and George. 2002, Candlewick Press, Ages 2 to 5.
